Masters degrees in Critical Care Nursing train postgraduates in the skills to assess, manage and monitor the provision of care given to critically ill patients, and to administer treatment.
Related postgraduate specialisms include Emergency Nursing, Acute & Critical Care and Trauma Sciences. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in a relevant field such as Nursing, Midwifery or Medicine.
Nurses who specialise in Critical Care will often find themselves working in fast-paced, demanding environments, helping in emergency situations and working on wards where patients have suffered serious, traumatic injuries. You will be trained to provide care to patients who are critically ill or unstable following injury, surgery and life-threatening disease.
Critical Care involves helping a wide range of patients – infants, children, adults and the elderly – in burn units, intensive care and trauma centres. As such, courses in this field often combine interdisciplinary approaches such as evidence-based practice with theoretical examination of current research and policy within healthcare.
Clinical settings are typical for critical care nurses, but you may also find work within rehabilitation centres, nursing homes or charities.
